Jurgen Klopp has talked about Gini Wijnaldum’s links with Barcelona, as Liverpool have made a decision over Thiago Alcantara transfer.

Liverpool have been very quiet in the transfer window this summer, with the arrival of Olympiacos left-back Konstantinos Tsimikas marking the only addition to the Reds’ squad so far.

The Reds boss has had his say on the rumoured move of Georginio Wijnaldum to Barcelona.

“It’s all good with Gini,” Klopp said.

“Absolutely fine about the future as far as we are involved. I can’t speak about a few years, but it’s all good for the moment.

“You know the situation – between me, Gini and the club, everything is fine.

“Since Gini is here I have had 500 or 600 talks with him. Of course I’ve spoken to him since he came back from international duty. But that’s all.”

According to talkSPORT, Liverpool are happy to wait until the final week of the transfer window before making a substantial move for Thiago Alcantara.

The Premier League champions have been reluctant to meet Bayern Munich’s £27million asking price and are prepared to hold off until October to try and get the best possible deal.

Although Liverpool are working within a budget after winning the Premier League title, Klopp is a fan of Thiago and the waiting time may allow them to open up more funds, especially if Georginio Wijnaldum’s rumoured move to Barcelona comes off.
